DRC’S QUALIFICATIONS 13. DRC specializes in providing comprehensive chapter 11 administrative services, including noticing, claims processing, balloting, and other related services critical to the effective administration of chapter 11 cases. Indeed, DRC has developed efficient and cost-effective methods to properly handle the voluminous mailings associated with the noticing, claims processing, and balloting portions of chapter 11 cases to ensure the orderly and fair treatment of creditors, equity security holders, and all other parties in interest. Further, DRC has experience working with, and will continue to work with, the Clerk to ensure that the services provided conform to all of the Court’s procedures, the Local Rules, and the provisions of any orders entered by the Court. Accordingly, the Debtor’s estates and their creditors will benefit from DRC’s retention because DRC has developed efficient and cost-effective methods in this area of expertise. 14. DRC has substantial experience in matters of this size and complexity, and has acted as the official claims and noticing agent in many large bankruptcy cases. See, e.g., In re Adara Enterprises Corp., Case No. 21-10736 (JKS) (Bankr. D. Del. 2021); In re Castex Energy 2005 Holdco LLC, et al., Case No. 21-30710 (Bankr. S.D.

The Debtor respectfully requests that the undisputed fees and expenses incurred by DRC in the performance of the above services be treated as administrative expenses of the Debtor's estates pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 156(c) and be paid in the ordinary course of business without further application to or order of the Court. DRC agrees to maintain records of all services showing dates, categories of services, fees charged and expenses incurred, and to serve monthly invoices on the Debtor, the office of the United States Trustee, counsel for the Debtor, counsel for any official committee, if any, monitoring the expenses of the Debtor and any party in interest who specifically requests service of the monthly invoices. If any dispute arises relating to the Engagement Agreement or monthly invoices, the parties shall meet and confer in an attempt to resolve the dispute; if resolution is not achieved, the parties may seek resolution of the matter from the Court. 16. Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtor provided DRC a retainer in the amount of $25,000. DRC seeks to apply its retainer to all prepetition invoices, and then seeks direction that the Debtor shall replenish the retainer to its original amount. Thereafter, DRC seeks authorization to hold its retainer under the Engagement Agreement during the Chapter 11 Case as security for the payment of fees and expenses incurred under the Engagement Agreement. 17. Additionally, under the terms of the Engagement Agreement, the Debtor has agreed to indemnify, defend and hold harmless DRC and its members, officers, employees,

7

representatives and agents under certain circumstances specified in the Engagement Agreement, except in circumstances resulting solely from DRC’s fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct or as otherwise provided in the order. The Debtor believes that such an indemnification obligation is customary, reasonable and necessary to retain the services of a Claims and Noticing Agent in this Chapter 11 Case. DISINTERESTEDNESS 18. To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, information and belief, and except as disclosed in the Voorhies Declaration, DRC has represented that it neither holds nor represents any interest materially adverse to the Debtor's estates in connection with its retention as Claims and Noticing Agent. 19. Moreover, in connection with its retention as the claims agent, DRC represents in the Voorhies Declaration, among other things, that: a. DRC is not a creditor of the Debtor; b. DRC will not consider itself employed by the United States government and shall not seek any compensation from the United States government in its capacity as the Claims Agent in this Chapter 11 Case; c. By accepting employment in this Chapter 11 Case, DRC waives any rights to receive compensation from the United States government in connection with the Debtor's case; d. In its capacity as the Claims Agent in this Chapter 11 Case, DRC will not be an agent of the United States and will not act on behalf of the United States; e. DRC will not employ any past or present employees of the Debtor in connection with its work as the Claims Agent in this Chapter 11 Case; f. DRC is a “disinterested person” as that term is defined in Bankruptcy Code section 101(14) with respect to the matters upon which it is to be engaged; g. In its capacity as Claims Agent in this Chapter 11 Case, DRC will not intentionally misrepresent any fact to any person;

8

h. DRC shall be under the supervision and control of the Clerk’s office with respect to the receipt and recordation of claims and claim transfers; i. DRC will comply with all requests of the Clerk’s office and the guidelines promulgated by the Judicial Conference of the United States for the implementation of 28 U.S.C. § 156(c); and j. None of the services provided by DRC as Claims Agent in this Chapter 11 Case shall be at the expense of the Clerk’s office. 20. DRC will supplement its disclosure to the Court if any facts or circumstances are discovered that would require such additional disclosure. 21. To the extent that there is any inconsistency between this Application, the proposed order, and the Engagement Agreement, the Debtor respectfully submit that the Proposed Order shall govern. WAIVER OF MEMORANDUM OF LAW 22. The Debtor requests that the Court waive and dispense with the requirement set forth in LBR 7102(b)(2) that any motion filed shall have an accompanying memorandum of law. The legal authorities upon which the Debtor relies are set forth in the Application. Accordingly, the Debtor submits that a waiver of the requirements set forth in LBR 7102(b)(2) is appropriate under the circumstances. NOTICE 23. Notice of the Application has been provided to: (a) the Office of the United States Trustee for the District of New Hampshire; (b) counsel to the New Hampshire Insurance Department; (c) the Office of the Attorney General of New Hampshire; (d) the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of New Hampshire; (e) the Office of the New Hampshire Secretary of State; (f) counsel to UMB Bank, as indenture trustee; (g) the Debtor’s twenty (20) largest unsecured creditors; and (h) any party filing a notice of appearance in this Chapter 11 Case.

24. The Debtor submits that, in light of the nature of the relief requested, no further notice of this Application is required. NO PRIOR REQUEST 25. No prior request for the relief sought herein has been made to this Court or any other court.

request, DRC will perform such other noticing, claims, technical, and support services specified in the Application and the Engagement Agreement. 4. DRC is comprised of leading industry professionals with significant experience in both the legal and administrative aspects of large, complex chapter 11 cases. DRC’s professionals have experience in noticing, claims administration, solicitation, balloting and facilitating other administrative aspects of chapter 11 cases and experience in matters of this size and complexity. DRC’s professionals have acted as debtor’s counsel or official claims and noticing agent in many large bankruptcy cases nationwide.

DRC represents, among other things, that: a. it will not consider itself employed by the United States government and shall not seek any compensation from the United States government in its capacity as the claims agent in the Chapter 11 Case; b. by accepting employment in the Chapter 11 Case, DRC waives any right to receive compensation from the United States government; c. in its capacity as the claims agent in the Chapter 11 Case, it will not be an agent of the United States and will not act on behalf of the United States; and d. it is a “disinterested person” as that term is defined in Bankruptcy Code section 101(14) with respect to the matters upon which it is to be engaged. 6. To the best of my knowledge, and based solely upon information provided to me by the Debtor, and except as provided herein, neither DRC, nor any of its professionals, has any materially adverse connection to the Debtor, their creditors or other relevant parties. DRC may have relationships with certain of the Debtor creditors as vendors or in connection with cases in which DRC serves or has served in a neutral capacity as claims and noticing agent and/or administrative advisor for another chapter 11 debtor. 7. DRC has reviewed its electronic database to determine whether it has any relationships with the list of entities provided by the Debtor. Based on the results of such search, at this time, DRC is not aware of any relationship that would present a disqualifying conflict of interest. Should DRC discover any new relevant facts or relationships bearing on the matters described herein during the period of its retention, DRC will use reasonable efforts to promptly file a supplemental declaration. 8. DRC is an affiliate of American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”). AST is a global financial communications and stakeholder management company. Within the AST

31

corporate structure, DRC operates as a separate and independent legal entity. No personnel from AST have access to confidential data held by DRC, and no DRC personnel have access to AST clientele data or knowledge of AST’s connections. There are no formal systems in place to maintain “Chinese walls” or other barriers between the affiliated entities as DRC’s files are on a separate system, and DRC does not have the ability to access our affiliates systems. AST and its affiliates provide stock transfer solution services mainly to public companies or companies intending to trade shares publicly. These services include transfer agency services, initial public offering counseling, proxy solicitation assistance and data analysis, and electronic transmission of data services. AST and its affiliates do not provide advisory services in restructurings. Given the legal and operational separateness of DRC from AST, DRC does not believe that any relationships that AST and its affiliates maintain would create an interest of DRC that would be materially adverse to the Debtor's estates or any class of creditors or equity security holders. 9. DRC, as well as its personnel, has and will continue to have relationships personally or in the ordinary course of business with certain vendors, professionals, financial institutions, and other parties in interest that may be involved in the Debtor's Chapter 11 Case. DRC may also provide professional services to entities or persons that may be creditors or parties in interest in this Chapter 11 Case, which services do not directly relate to, or have any direct connection with, this Chapter 11 Case or the Debtor. 10. DRC and its personnel in their individual capacities regularly utilize the services of law firms, investment banking and advisory firms, accounting firms and financial advisors. Such firms engaged by DRC or its personnel may appear in Chapter 11 Cases representing the Debtor or parties in interest. All engagements where such firms represent DRC or its personnel in their individual capacities are unrelated to this Chapter 11 Case.

11. To the extent I become aware of DRC having worked with any other creditors of the Debtor, I will file a supplemental declaration advising the Court of the same. To the extent that DRC discovers any facts bearing on matters described herein, DRC will supplement the information contained herein. 12. Based upon the information available to me, I believe that DRC is a “disinterested person” within the meaning of Bankruptcy Code section 101(14), in that DRC and its personnel: (a) are not creditors, equity security holders, or insiders of the Debtor; (b) are not and were not, within two years before the date of the filing of this Chapter 11 Case, a director, officer, or employee of the Debtor; and (c) do not have an interest materially adverse to the interests of the Debtor's estates or any class of creditors or equity security holders, by reason of any direct or indirect relationship to, connection with, or interest in, the Debtor. 13. Under the terms of the Services Agreement, the Debtor have agreed to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless DRC and its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, employees, consultants, and subcontractors under certain circumstances specified in the Engagement Agreement, except in circumstances resulting solely from DRC’s gross negligence or willful misconduct or as otherwise provided in the Engagement Agreement. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information, and belief. Executed this 31st day of August, 2021. /s/ Nellwyn VoorhiesNellwyn Voorhies President Donlin, Recano & Company, Inc.
